Folk rockers Delta Spirit will be hitting the road for a US summer tour, and they’re bringing along some of their best pals. Dubbed “An Evening with Delta Spirit and Friends,” the jaunt promises a “one-of-a-kind” set of special guests each and every night.

Among those expected to take the stage alongside the band: members of Deer Tick, Dr. Dog, and The Walkmen, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s Alec OunsworthRobert Ellis, and Deep Sea Diver’s Jessica Dobson, among others. More artists will be announced soon.

The tour, which is in continued support of the band’s latest album, Into the Wide, was inspired by The Band’s star-studded The Last Waltz LP and concert, and will likely be Delta Spirit’s last for some time as they gear up to work on new music.

“We really wanted to do something unique and personal on this tour, and give fans a rare chance to see us perform in intimate venues,” frontman Matt Vasquez notes in a press release. “We’re going to do some deep cuts from our albums, covers of some of our favorite jams, and some reworked and stripped down versions of our most popular songs.”
